Matant Livia’s Baked Eggplant

Again, a good recipe making use of summer’s garden bounty. This is good for a nice vegetarian or Meatless Monday Meal. Enjoy with sweet iced tea or a red wine. This is one of the first recipes I posted.

Creole and Cajun foods are sooooo good.  Different, but kinda sorta similar.  I spent a year in Nawlins..New Orleans to those who don’t know what Nawlins is.  I visited various parishes as well.  I collected many wonderful recipes and how-to’s while there.  All of them are “Take this, do that, add this….”  Most of them begin with “First you make a roux.”   If you are an inexperienced cook and not sure about amounts or methods, you’d best leave Cajun and Creole food alone.  I would suggest though, you learn how to cook without a recipe.   Make it individual, make it with joy, and like all good Southern food, make it with lots of love!

Eggplant – depends on size and how many you want to feed
The Holy Trinity – onion, bell pepper, celery, chopped finely
Fresh parsley, chopped
Grated parmesan cheese
Chopped tomato (fresh summer tomatoes are alway best for everything!)

      Good. You can taste this after mixed together to see if you want to add more salt, some garlic, more onion, hot sauce, cheese….

        I’m off to have a shower and get dressed, then venture forth to do some shopping … It’s a matter of what I can find that I need, here. 🙂

          That is often the case. I frequently have to made adjustments in things I fix because of what I don’t have on hand vs. how far I am willing to drive (like across town) for something special. I get lazy.
